Support Your Local Skateboard Shop #sylss

Skateboarding doesn't owe you anything, but it will give you plenty. Your local skate shop gives back to skateboarding in ways you might not even realize. Your local shop hosts contests, demos, pro signings, help building local skate parks and is a social hub for the local skate scene. Who else gives back like that?? No one!

When was the las time you met a pro skater at a sporting goods store or entered a contest sponsored by a box-store like Kmart? They'll take your money and sell you a cheap-ass skateboard, but they don't give anything back to skateboarding. So don't turn your back on your local shop by purchasing an inferior board from Target. Support your local shop by shopping with them. They know products, trends and all sorts of cool shit you don't. Trust me.

The only reason to turn your back on your local shop is if you have a "back" like hers above. I that case, turn it on us! But make sure you give your business to shops that give back to skateboarding and help build it up. Your local skate shop is one of the few businesses that really cares about skateboarding.

Uninformed skaters/consumers need your help. You can lend a hand and help support local skate shops by downloading these SYLSS "Crappy Skateboard" WARNING LABELS (4-up PDF files) and stick 'em on those crappy products you encounter in the mall, discount stores, toy stores and sporting goods stores.

Only independent skateboard shops sell quality products that won't break or fall apart in the first 10 minutes of use. Boards purchased from crappy department stores and gluttonous box-stores are unsafe and will usually result in unnecessary injuries.

Your local skate shop is the only place that cares about you and ensuring you get high quality equipment. Department stores, toy stores and sporting goods stores only want your money. Independent skate shops want to keep you as a customer by helping you get the best products available.
